Some government grant programs in Australia may turn you down if you have had a business that failed, especially if it did so for a lack of competent management. However, many government grant programs should still consider you if you are otherwise eligible. The value of thorough research and taking the time to look into multiple Australia government grant programs should not be underestimated. Multiple applications to different programs increases your chance of being approved for a grant, and prevents you from wasting time by waiting to hear back before trying again elsewhere.
